Commercial disputes usually involve complex factual and legal issues. However, at Morisons we appreciate that understanding and giving advice on these aspects is not enough. Our highly experienced team is very much aware of the wider non-legal considerations which usually arise such as cost, delay, diversion of attention, uncertainty and the impact that can have on the strategy for the business, financial provisioning and potential damage to reputation. We therefore pride ourselves on working closely with our clients to understand what is important to them so that we can frame a strategy which gets them to the result they wish to achieve, taking account of the legal and the wider non-legal issues which are in play. Having set the strategy we keep it under regular review to ensure that it is still fit for purpose but whatever the strategy may be from time to time, we are fearless in following it through.
We provide advice on all manners of commercial disputes and have a particular specialism in relation to disputes about property and leases. Our experience covers acting for clients in the Court of Session, the Sheriff Court, arbitration and mediation. Robust negotiation skills are a given.
